Red Cross is not the only one helping with this disaster.

It is happening again, just like Katrina--people are donating tons of money to the Red Cross for San Diego fire relief, however fire victims will barely see a penny of that money.

In the meantime, very small charities like mine (The Jenna Druck Foundation) are working directly with the fire victims and will continue to do so long after the Red Cross leaves. So, if you want to help out please consider donating to us and the other small charities in San Diego. Even though the disaster is over, there is much more work to be done and these families have a long road ahead.

please refer to redcross.org and take the time to read about in-kind donations; you statement "It is happening again, just like Katrina--people are donating tons of money to the Red Cross for San Diego fire relief, however fire victims will barely see a penny of that money." is false.

I guess the Red Cross found my post. But like I said, the fire victims aren't receiving much from the Red Cross, in kind donations are nice, however what about that hard cash that everyone donated? How come the news is reporting that some of the donations from the fire ended up in other states? Did they make that up?
